Friday Favorites!

Hooray it's Friday!! Here are a few of my Friday favorites today:

#1. This new centerpiece. I decided I needed some pretty flowers on our kitchen table and I'm loving the new look. Makes me happy and more excited about Spring.

#2. I tried a new recipe this week and it was a SUCCESS. It requires very few ingredients and is very easy. Start with 3-4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts. Put them in a crockpot on low heat. Pour in 1 whole bottle of BBQ sauce, 1/2 cup Cherry Cola, and 1/2 cup brown sugar. Stir it all in and let cook on low for 5 hrs. Shred the chicken a few minutes before serving. I served ours on Hawaiian rolls with a slice of cheese and a pickle. YUMMERS!

#3. Waking up every morning to this guy on the couch. He sure does make himself comfortable and thinks he owns this place. 

#4. I'm so excited to spend this weekend in Branson with my best friend and her family. Can't wait for some girl time and shopping. We have so much to catch up on. It's been 7 months since I've seen her. I think that's the longest we've ever gone. Not okay!
Can't wait to see them!

#5. I'm also super excited because these two cuties are coming to visit us!!! There will be lots of fishing, antiquing, grilling out, catching up, and showing them the town. Excited is an understatement.

#6. Aaron and I have three more super fun weekend getaways coming up soon. I'm not going to share much on that now, but you will hear all about them after the fact. These next few months are going to be packed full of great times. I'm so excited. 

That's all for now. Hope you guys have a wonderful weekend!!

Come on Spring!!

I'm trying to think happy thoughts of Spring today. We are right in the middle of a nasty winter storm and they are calling for 1/2 inch of ice and 2-4 inches of ice and snow. Not going to be good here. If we loose power, we can pretty much bet it will be a week before we get it back. Praying it doesn't happen. So instead of sulking about how annoyed I am with this crazy long winter, I'm dreaming of Spring and all the pretty happy things that come along with it. My favorite seasons are Spring and Fall. I love everything about them. I've made a few small changes around the house trying to get it more springy...nothing big, but I like the changes.

 I changed up the front door hanger to this.
 When I think of Spring, I think of green, moss, burlap, and pale pastels. I had my eye on this moss topiary that I saw in a flea market booth. I finally decided to buy it. For some reason, I have a thing for moss topiary's.
 I also needed something to go above our TV. It was a big blank wall and it was driving me crazy. I didn't want anything too crazy because I didn't want too much going on seeing that our gallery wall is next to this wall. I didn't want it really busy and cluttered. I've been wanting a moss and burlap wreath and I like the look of window panes and wreaths. It reminds me of vintage, rustic, and spring. I'm happy with how it turned out. I made the wreath and bought the window pane at a garage sale. It's not in the greatest condition, but I like the way it looks old and vintage so I decided not to do anything to it.
 I also found this D at a flea market last weekend and knew it would be the perfect addition to our gallery wall. 
 I brought out my dried wildflowers and burlap mason jar. 
 I went to TJMAXX yesterday in hopes of finding some Easter decor. Easter is my most favorite holiday, but I'm sad to report that I don't have one single Easter decoration. I was hoping to find some stuff at TJ. TJMAXX is my weakness and I never leave the store without spending $50 and yesterday I left with these three dish towels. I was proud of myself and I'm so in love with these fun, bright kitchen towels. They were $10 for all three. 
 I'm also a huge sucker for stationary and dollar bins. I don't ever pay more than $1-$3 for stationary. Why would you when you have the Target and Michael's dollar bins? The notecards, stamps, and stickers are all from Michael's and the pins and pencils are from Target. 
I've already switched over all my candles to fresh, fruity, floral candles. This one is my current favorite. It's called The Smell of Spring from Aromatique. It smells amazing. You should get one NOW! 

So we will continue to stay warm inside and wait on this storm to hit. Aaron says he already has cabin fever and it's only 9:30am haha. Samson is enjoying it and hogging the entire couch, but he sure is cute! Stay warm friends and pray for warm weather.
